Sangley-Manila ferry pwedeng idugtong sa Pasig ferry system

07/12/2019

 

MAAARI umanong idugtong ng Department of Transportation ang planong Sangley-Manila commuter boat service sa Pasig River ferry system para mas maging kapakipakinabang ito sa mga pasahero.

If the DOTr is going to allow new commuter boats to run between Sangley airport in Cavite City and Manila via Manila Bay, then we might as well integrate the service with the Pasig River ferry system,” ani Makati City Rep. Luis Campos Jr.

Plano ng DoTr na lagyan ng ferry station ang ginagawang Sangley airport sa Cavite upang maging mabilis ang pagpunta roon ng mga pasahero bilang bahagi ng pag-decongest sa Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

“Joining together the Sangley-Manila-Pasig River ferry services, possibly via a common terminal later on, might be highly sensible, if we want to encourage the optimization of water buses as an alternate mode of public transportation in and around Metro Manila,” dagdag pa ni Campos.

Kasama sa budget ng gobyerno ngayong taon ang P2 bilyon Pasig River ferry system. Magtatayo ng 17 bagong istasyon sa 25 kilometrong Pasig River na dumaraan sa Manila, Mandaluyong, Makati, Taguig, Pasig at Marikina.

Inaasahang sasakay sa mga airconditioned na ‘water buses’ ang may 76,000 pasahero araw-araw.

Konti ang tumangkilik sa naunang ferry service sa Pasig City dahil sa tagal bago mapuno ang ‘water buses’ na may 150 upuan kaya ang gagamitin na ay mas maliliit na 50-seater ferry na aalis kada 15 minuto.
